Incapacity & Long-Term Health Care Planning:
How to Successfully Navigate the Legal and Financial Challenges of
Incapacity (such as Dementia) and Long-Term Care for You or a Loved One
Whether you have an estate plan or not, the high costs of medical care can quickly pose a significant danger to you or a loved one’s assets. This is a very real concern as statistics show:
- 80%: the likelihood that a person age 65 will need nursing home, assisted living, home or community-care during their lifetime.
- $37,200: the average cost per year of an assisted living facility in Oklahoma in 2018.
- $63,875: the average cost per year of a private room nursing home in Oklahoma in 2018.
Very unfortunately it can happen in a snap - the savings account drained; stocks and bonds cashed in; the family home sold. Should this situation occur, you, your spouse, your parents or grandparents could become nearly broke, leaving you or them nothing to live on day to day, with your or your loved one’s life turned upside down.
